Canadian Court Convicts 2 FLDS Members For Bringing Daughter To US To Marry Church Leader

As reported by the Toronto Sun, a British Columbia (Canada) trial court has found that FLDS member Brandon James Blackmore, assisted by Gail Blackmore, transported the couple's 13-year old daughter from Canada to the United States to facilitate her marriage to Warren Steed Jeffs, then the Prophet and President of the FLDS Church. In Regina v. Blackmore, (BC Sup. Ct., Feb. 3, 2017), the court after making extensive findings concluded that the two are guilty, but acquitted a third defendant-- James Oler-- on charges relating to his daughter.
